This chapter covers all that needs to be put in place prior to starting a CBT for psychosis group and how to ensure attendance. We discuss what needs to be considered in terms of recruitment according to the setting, selection of participants (e.g. homogeneous group or not), the choice of the setting, schedule and frequency of sessions (e.g. once or twice a week), the advantages of using of a participant manual or workbook, and material that need to be planned ahead (e.g. flip-charts, snacks). The chapter also covers transportation issues, problems with attendance, vacation breaks or missed sessions, and proposes to consider measuring outcomes expected in terms of participant change at the end of the group.
